4 Introduction to SolarWinds Simon Dollner

5 SolarWinds Overview 1998 – SWI enters the “network tools” market with the Engineer’s Toolset 2001 – SWI transitions from “tools” provider to “NMS” provider with ORION Dec 2006 – SWI develops it’s first “module” (NTA) 2007 – SWI opens global Offices in Singapore and Cork, Ireland Publicly traded on the NYSE since May 2009 Jan 2010 – SWI adds Storage & Virtualization Management through Tek-Tools once again transforming from “NMS” vendor to “IT Management” vendor

6 SolarWinds Overview, continued

7 Powerful Products for IT Management
SolarWinds manages Network Devices Routers, Switches, Firewalls Servers Physical and Virtual Software Applications Exchange, SQL Storage Devices SAN array, NAS, DAS SolarWinds products Periodically check device performance Alert network administrators of problems Report on overall performance Identify and diagnose issues Resolve network issues Network Apps Storage

8 The Enterprise NMS Challenge
Expensive to Run Dedicated Staff Expensive maintenance Months to Deploy Complex to Use Require lots to training for staff to be effective Data is not organized intuitively Slow to Evolve Buy new to address needs your current solution can’t address Trying New Solutions is Hard Hard to evaluate beyond the ‘demo’ Expensive to buy & deploy

9 SolarWinds Orion Powerful Products Enterprise Operations Console
Network Performance Monitoring Network Traffic Analysis WAN Performance IP Address Management Network Configuration Management Application Performance Monitoring Enterprise Operations Console Orion Scalability Engines

10 Datacenter Consolidation & Virtualization has reshaped IT management
Internet Internet Datacenter Consolidation & Virtualization Shift Virtual Network Network Management complexity increases Dependence on the network Networked storage growth Interdependence of network, storage, server ESX Server VM VM VM Server Storage Network VM VM VM Shared Storage

11 This drives storage concerns…
Even more reliance on shared storage How much storage do I have? How much will I need to purchase? What drive types am I running low on (SATA, FC, etc.)? Monitoring of all storage network components are critical How many IOPS are going through that LUN? Which virtual machine (or application) will be impacted by the hotspot on host server HBA? Capacity analysis and planning is necessary for budgeting storage How do I get a single view of the capacity of all my storage?

12 Profiler Storage & Virtualization Mgmt.
Increase IT efficiency by driving down storage management costs and increasing management of virtualized environments. Virtual and Server Profiler Maps applications & logical connections to the physical infrastructure Real-time performance monitoring Policy based alerts Supports server consolidation Storage Profiler Affordable SRM software DAS, NAS, and SAN Storage Capacity planning Storage performance reports

13 Profiler Strength Storage Profiler delivers agent less, multi-vendor storage performance monitoring the SolarWinds way Virtual & Server Profiler gives you a consolidated view into physical server performance, along with VMware® cluster, host, & virtual machine performance. Backup Profiler delivers a consolidated, real-time view of the status of all of the backups in your enterprise.

60 Virtualization – Orion NPM or Profiler?
Both Orion NPM and Virtual and Server Profiler have Virtualization monitoring capabilities – what’s the difference? Profiler has several advanced features which NPM does not Capacity Planning – how many more VMs can I add? Physical to Virtual (P2V) Simulator End to End mapping Do you use Storage Area Networks (SANs) in your Virtual Environment? Yes > Profiler, Profiler, Profiler !!! No > Profiler is still better but NPM will also do just fine KISS (Keep it simple stupid) – don’t introduce another product when it’s not needed. Modify This Footer: View -> Header & Footer
